Description

Leprechaun is the wide flow in the middle of the crag. There are many variations, the easiest being on the far left and the far right. The central section climbs a low angle slab to a WI3 curtain.

Location

The farhest to the left at this section of the crag, before you take the trail over towards "The Beast."

Protection

Big fat screws and TR possibilities from the trees above. To TR the flow it is easiest though long to approach from the far right side of the crag.

Neither photo posted as of 2/1/16 depicts the actual route. As the guidebook reads, Leprechaun's Lement includes all three lines to the climber's left in the main area. AKA everything left of Hanging by a Moment.

The leftmost gully is WI2 and many practice this route sans tools.
The center line starts on the right trending slab, but would break off to hit that ~10' headwall. Fun!
The rightmost line is what most people think of as this route. It is a WI2+/3- or so route of around 70'+ in height on a right trending slab. A great beginner lead, or a more challenging lesson in practicing footwork without tools... just low angle enough to get by. Feb 1, 2016
